Hospitality and Tourism Management (formerly Travel Industry Management)

Hawaii is one of the world’s most sought-after travel destinations and HPU Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) students connect to it as they study. Through internships and partnership projects with major hotels and travel providers, plus one of the most diverse cultural student and faculty populations, affiliations with major global associations and professional travel clubs, HTM students are often already connected to their first career position when they graduate.
